Wise words, success doesn't teach you the things that failure can. Humility and grace are easier once you've lost a battle or two.

Well, yeah, I guess. You learn not to do that again, but you also learn how to regroup, survive, recover, and persevere ...oh, wait a minute, ya better know how to do that beforehand. Nope, the consequences merely provided a field laboratory to underline the need for preparedness and a place to adapt and overcome. But they will teach you what you don't know in a heartbeat.

Magoo, just quote yourself, and then quickly post in another thread... you might fool the count and get through without having to see the 'evil' number... by the way it supposedly is a misconception... someone looked at it upside down and it kinda stuck... triple 9 is what you're avoiding really...

It's just like the cheering with drinks... supposedly meant to distract the devil/evil (depending on culture), and what else a chime of vessels with intoxicating substances is than inviting it? wink

You went through 616 without worry, so triple 6 shouldn't slow you either. See you at 667 and beyond!!!

To live is to learn. At least for those willing to do so. From both good and bad comes realization and understanding.
